“When the war on terror in Syria is completed and when there is no need to aid Syrians in the fight against terrorism, we will make a decision. Whether we are needed or whether the Syrian people and government require our support will be evaluated.
Russia responded to the call of the Syrian government to assist them in the fight against terrorism three years ago, Bogdanov said. Under an inter-governmental agreement between Russia and Syria (on the deployment of military presence), Russia stationed and used two military bases in Syria, the Tartus naval logistics centre and the Hmeymim airbase near Latakia.
